The Renaissance Columbus Westerville-Polaris Hotel opened its doors in early June. The modern American lake house-inspired hotel features 222 guest rooms and 15,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space with the capacity to seat up to 750 guests.

Renaissance Westerville offers views of the adjacent lake through floor-to-ceiling windows as well as nature-inspired finishes, outdoor relaxation areas with fire pits, a walking path and spacious patio that extends across the back of the hotel.

“We are excited to welcome guests to this unique hotel and look forward to defying the usual hotel experience, exceeding guest expectations and further establishing ourselves as a hotel destination of choice in Columbus, said Mark Laport, president and CEO of Concord Hospitality. 

The restaurant within the hotel, The Two-One, is named after the 21st Amendment in honor of the community's rich history in prohibition. The restaurant offers an eclectic American-themed menu with both indoor and outdoor seating.

With a heavy local focus on the Westerville community, the hotel will feature area artists and musicians and offers “Navigators” to support guests seeking distinct Westerville experiences. Other amenities include a fitness facility, an indoor swimming pool and Marriot Rewards R Lounge.
